I have some preliminary details for those of you who plan to attend the Penn State game at Alabama.
1) There will be a golf tournament beginning at 1:30 pm Central time on Friday, September 10 at the Greystone Country Club. Cost to enter the tournament will be $100. I am not sure yet about golf club rental. The plan is to pair two Penn Staters with two Alabama fans for each team. I will provide more details when I know them.
2) There will be a mixer starting at 7:30 on Friday night at Ivory's Lounge in the Wynfrey Hotel (located at the Galleria (at approximately I-65 and I-459 interchange in Hoover, AL). The Alumni Association sponsors this event. There will be appetizers, a nacho bar, and live band. The PSU Pep band, cheerleaders and Nittany Lion will also make an appearance at this event, but we do not know what time.
3) We are reserving a bus for the game and may have additional seats; however, we don't yet know how many local people are going to reserve spaces on the bus. The bus will probably not leave until noon after a brunch that the Wynfrey hotel is having (open to anyone), so if you want to tailgate all day, this is not a good option. If you don't want to drive, this is a good option. If you leave anytime after 7 or 8 am from Birmingham, it can take you 2-3 hours to get there because of traffic. Parking also gets worse the later in the day you get there (I'm supposed to leave at 6 am).
4) The Alumni Association will have a pep rally at their tent at 3 pm.
Let me know if you have any questions.
